    Hi, All,

    Thank you very much.

    As I said in the paper, some sicydiine gobies are of very high conservation concern and rare globally. I will suggest leaving them alone in the wild rather than keeping them in a small tank.

    To be honest, I will suggest leaving all mentioned in the paper in the wild, and not to buy them or collect them from the wild.

    Cheers,

    holacanthus

    Would it be possible to commercially tank breed these fish?

    @ Hokum – I think it’d be difficult given their amphidromous life cycle…

    Is collection of wild fishes in China policed at all Tony?

    I’ve been reading so much about Gobies its all beginning to blur. I could of sworn it was a PDF I came across.

    Eggs of some sicydiine gobies have hatched in the tanks of certain Japanese experts or hobbyists from Europe (known from Seriously Fish), but NO ONE can raise the fry successfully. So, conclusion is no one can artifically “breed” the fish.

    As I know, all fishes in the trade are unfortunately wild-caught.

    Of course there would be some regulations. But all I know is some stocks have already been depleted by aquarium hobbyists, given their extremely small population size.

    The PDF I’m thinking of is the one where Yoshinobori Gobies were bred these are also amphidromous.
